Design Hackathon with AIG held for young women
Global insurer AIG Europe Limited (AIG), in partnership with greenlight for girls (g4g) and the Southbank Centre, invited 60 young women aged 12– 18 years to take part in a Design Hackathon in September to address a major societal challenge.
The Design Hackathon brought together young girls and leading female figures and professional role models with a passion for inclusion. Using the design-thinking process to creatively develop ideas in only a few hours, these 60 girls developed ten projects to address the issue of securing strong financial futures for women and girls from all backgrounds.
The winning team, which developed an educational app to help address this issue were then asked to present their findings during the International Day of the Girl at Southbank Centre.
Vicky Churcher, intermediary director, AIG Life UK, commented, “We’re proud of our g4g partnership and I was excited to be a part of this special event. These types of events are vital in highlighting the major societal issues and challenges that women are facing, and bringing them to the forefront of young minds.”
